From the perspective of Baryn Futa, it’s not possible to overstate the importance of the arts on any society. Art establishes a society’s identity and it should be preserved for future generations. The arts are like a time capsule; the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors. Because of that, we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much current and past art as possible for the future. That makes art museums and art preservation extremely important as far as Baryn Futa is concerned. Because fine art represents what a society is, Baryn has a strong desire to preserve that for the ages. That is why he is interested in getting more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does.

That is the main reason Baryn Futa now has memberships in a great number of prominent art museums with impressive collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum. It is also why he has developed and maintained such a large and impressive art collection himself and why he routinely loans his art to museums. Art defines society as it stands now and we owe it to our posterity to preserve art for everyone.
